Almonte then stepped forward and said to Crockett in English , "Throw yourself on the mercy of His Excellency , Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna !" Cockett slowly looked around at the hundreds of Mexican troops surrounding him ; then looking and stareing at Santa Anna and smiling a little , he said , "You're Santanna ?" Santa Anna nodded , and Crockett said , "Thought you would be taller ." He then said to Almonte , "Tell him I am willing to discuss terms of surrender ." Almonte translated in Spanish what Crockett said , and Santa Anna smiled at Crockett , while enjoying a game of cat and mouse . Crockett said , "If the general here will have his men put down their weapons and peacefully assemble , I promise I will take you to General Houston and try my best to get him to spare most of your lives . That said (smiling a little wider ) Sam's a mite prickly ...so no promises . Tell him." Almonte hestated while glancing at Santa Anna . "Tell him!" , angrily Crockett barked . Almonte turned to Santa Anna and said in Spanish , "He wants us to surrender , Excellency ." The smile faded from Anna's face , he raised his hand and nodded to the execution squad . Castrillon ( one of Santa Anna's men ) stepped forward and said to Anna , " Excellency , please spare him !" A sergeant shouted to the execution squad , "Kill him !" Crockett said , "I'm a screamer . I got the roughest racin' horse , the prettiest sister , the surest rifle and the ugliest dog in the district . I am half horse and half alligator with a whiff of harricane ..." "Kill him !" David Crockett then said grinning , as he stared directly into the eyes of the execution squad , " I'm a screamer ..." Just then , the men moved forward swiftly and plunged about half a dozen bayonets into Crockett's chest ; killing him . Aterwards , Santa Anna's army took Travis' , Bowie's , Crockett's and the other Alamo defenders , and consumed their bodies by flames .
